Start up your computer in safe mode, by default the built-in administrator account has no password and you can login and then reset lost password for your account. There are also many other Windows 7 password reset methods and softwares, and the most popular ones are pcunlocker, ophcrack,chntpw.

I reset my password using www.PasswordResetter.info in about 5 minutes. Last night, my wife decided she needed a password for her computer (this is after using it for 2 years without a password). Today when she powered it up, guess what? Wrong password. I found this website which helped me unlock her account in just a few minutes. Amazing! Kinda scary that it works as well as it does!

Hello, you can have a try with the command prompt method to reset the forgotten admin password. Here is how to:

1. Start your computer and press "F8" while the computer boots up. The Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

2. Scroll down to "Safe Mode with Command Prompt" with the arrow keys on the keyboard and press "Enter." Your computer starts in Safe Mode with Command Prompt.

3. Select the Administrator account that appear in the screen, then enter command prompt.

4. Type the commands for bypassing windows 7 passwords: net user Mosoh 123456 and enter, it will show you a message that" the command completed successfully.

5. Restart your computer, then you can log in as Mosoh with the password 123456. You can go to control Panel to change your account password if necessary.

If you can't remove the password you can use a third-party tool to reset it. For example Tenorshare Windows Password Recovery Tool.

hey queen help me the problem is that when i do the 4 th step it says error 5 has occured

what should i do

If you have another admin account to login you can follow the steps below to remove the password.

1. Click start, and then go to Control Panel->User Accounts and Family Safety-> User Accounts. (Or simply click on the User Accounts icon in control panel.)

2. Click on "Mange another account" under "Make changes to your user account".

3. Click on the account that you want to change the password for.

4. In the following screen, leave the password blank and you will logon without a password.

If you don't have another admin account you'd better to use Windows Password Recovery Tool Ultimate to remove the password. Here is the download source: http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/windows-password-recovery-tool.html

It is really a disaster to lose the password to log in to the computer because you can't do nothing without the password. In your case you'd better to use a tool to remove the password other than doing other things. Because other ways may cause the loss of data. I once used a tool to wipe out my lost password.

You should start a new question. The only reason I saw this is because I am following this one from a while ago.

It is good that you searched for answers in the related questions but to get a response from many members you should just start a new question.

is it the same step with windows 7 ultimet

Hey. There are 3 solutions for your question:

Solution 1: Use Windows 7 password reset disk

This solition requires that you have created a password reset disk in advance. Or else you can't reset the password.

1. Insert your password reset disk to the computer, click Reset Password.

2. Select your password reset disk and reset a new password.

Solution 2: Using Windows 7 default Administrator account

Windows 7 OS has a built-in administrator account which is created during Windows installation without password, and disable by default. You need to enable that account before losing your other admin account password. Or in this tip your built-in administrator account won’t appear in the screen.Suppose we have lost Mosoh account password.

1. Start your computer and press "F8" while the computer boots up. The Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

2. Scroll down to "Safe Mode with Command Prompt" and press "Enter." Your computer starts in Safe Mode with Command Prompt.

3. Select the Administrator account that appear in the screen, then enter command prompt.

4. Type: "net user Mosoh 123456" and press "enter" button, it will show you a message that "the command completed successfully".

5. Restart your computer, then you can log in as Mosoh with the password 123456. You can go to control Panel to change your account password if necessary.

Solution 3: Using Windows
Password Recovery
to reset password

Step 1: Log in any available computer that you can access to and allows you download. Download and install Windows Password Key in that computer.

Step 2: Run and burn the program to a blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive.

Step 3: When finish, insert the disk to your locked Computer and make your computer boot it from the disk by changing the BIOS setup, then you can follow the instruction to reset your password. It’s 100% recovery, so I’m sure you’ll enter your system with that account.

It can be frustrating when you forgot your password to your computer . there are some free options but there are equally frustrating and long winded.i would suggest just getting a customs software that is specially built for this task and does it safely without losing any files. I got my resetting software from here http://windowsrecoverpassword.com/ when i lost my password . it worked

Wow no one has answered this yet! Okay here is the solution I've been in the same situation before. Okay so first you need a windows cd. It should have came with your laptop. If you don't have one then force shut your computer down. When you put in the cd or force shut it down, and then turn your computer on, you should be given an option to repair your computer with command prompt. Once you get there (this is implying that you know how to use commands! if not just ask me!) copy the command prompt file from your C drive then rename the copied version sethc. What this does is makes it so that when you click shift 5 times it will open up command prompt. Now exit that and restart your computer. Once you get to the login screen of your computer click shift 5 times so that command prompt opens up. Here's where it gets tricky (again implying that you know how to use command prompt) So there are two options, but the easy option may not work for you. First the most obvious thing to do is change the password from command prompt. That didn't work for me so the other option is to add another admin account (I called mine hack account) and then reset the other account's password from there. That should work! Again if you don't know the commands ask me I'll give them to you. Also lock the hack account with a password that you know well!

Oh and all the people who said you need software? Yeah you actually don't! That's usually the easier way out but it takes some time to set up and figure out how to use! This is a pretty easy solution to so... yeah.

You can't. No admin password no access to anything more than a guest account. You'll have to wipe the drive and re install Windows. If there where a nice trick to recover the password or get around it then there wouldn't be much point in having it.
I have very successfully hacked many passwords on windows computers, and it's not hard ether. You just have to have the right software. I've hacked passwords on windows 2000 to windows 7 and everything in-between. and no, I'm not a computer technician either. Microsoft just doesn't want you to know it can be done, but trust me, it can.

And to the person who posted this question, sorry but I don't remember the name of the software I use, nor can I currently find the disk.
Most of the time the password is not "hacked" but simply deleted.
Sometimes we tend to not be to quick to give that kind of information out especially to a new user who provides no information about themselves. Are we dealing with a stolen laptop?, a kid trying to bypass his parents restrictions? A stalker trying to get into a victims computer? We can't tell, and don't want to accidentally assist them to do something they shouldn't. If they take it to a pro then whoever that is can verify that they have the right to get access. So, yes its possible, but how much do we want to share about that with an unknown person. And they can always just Google it themselves.

Lots of options to find or crack the admin password. I had to get my son to do it on my laptop.

You can take it to a computer repair place. It will probably cost less than reformating. Sometimes there will be a smart tech who can reset it.
